Subject: Hey Now!
Good show! I typically don't like the mid-80s, but was suggested to listen to this show. I expected the worst, but ended up with a pretty good show. The first set SMOKES from beginning to end with a Bird Song and LLR that really hooked me. The second set, while being a bit predictable, is still solid, at least until drums>space. Great versions of Scarlet>Fire and Estimated>Eyes. It does tail off a bit at the end, but still holds up pretty well.
Sound is superb, show is great (minus the second half of the second set), so I'd give it 4.5 stars if I could...but seeing as this is one of the best shows I've heard from the mid-80s, I'll give it a hesitant 5.
Subject: Smoking! I wish I had a copy.
My 3rd or 4th show. Ah sweet highschool memories. Could anyone send me a copy of this board? I'm a bit inept technologically but Im trying to learn. I know it's late to be trying to download these boards... can anyone help a brother out. Any advice at all. thanks
Subject: Strong performance
4 out of 5.
Good energy from the band
Subject: You know this space is getting hot
Ok, Ok, I know that I hand out far too many 5 stars to 1985 shows, but this one is so very tight. Despite a rather "predicatable" second set, this show really is very strong start to finish both in terms of the recording and the playing. Weir is LOUD here and seems to be having a very good time at that. Jerry flubs lyrics in Althea, but it's really pretty minor, and as with all 1985 Althea's (too rare: only 9!) it is just packed sick Jerry leads.
Subject: The First Of What Would Be Many!!!!
This was the show that triggered 3 years of non-stop touring for me. Everyone's got a 1st show and this was mine. I would never be the same!
A solid 85' performance with that Killer 85' Healy sound. Most notable is the steller Scarlet->Fire segway and the rare "Walking The Dog."
I lost my Maxell XLII's copy years ago too so thanks for posting it here for us to download.
Hey Folks -
Thanks for posting this recording and reuniting me with the Master Cassette soundboards that I lost during college. Great show along with some sentimental value as well, I suppose.
I, along with a few friends, was a guest of the band that night and, at the end of the night, Dan Healy popped the cassettes out of the soundboard and gave them to us - Maxell XLIIS's, if I remember correctly.
I held on to those tapes for a few years but then lost them in college ~1989 - always knew they would show up again somehow.... thanks!
